Children’s Worship

Children singing on stage

“Where 2 or 3 are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”
—Matthew 18:20

A special time of worship is provided during the 9am Sunday service for children age 4.5 through 2nd grade.

  • Our Children’s Worship program is “designed to help children worship in a special place apart from the worshiping congregation so they become able to worship meaningfully with the congregation.”
  • This program “uses a sensorimotor style of storytelling as a primary means for encountering God, so God is experienced, not just learned about. The experience of God is one of mystery, awe, and wonder.”
  • “Children need to know how to find a quiet place within, which enables them to get ready to worship ‘all by themselves’ rather than sit in church in an imposed silence. Our goal is to create an environment that enables young children to encounter and worship God.”
